James Anderson’s season goal is simple.
The 76ers swingman wants to duplicate what he did during the preseason.
“To be aggressive, be consistent in what I do as far as shooting the ball,” Anderson said, “and continue to contribute on defense.”
The 24-year-old’s first opportunity to duplicate his preseason performance comes in Wednesday’s season-opener against Miami at the Wells Fargo Center.
Anderson, who was waived by the Houston Rockets this summer, has been a solid pickup for the Sixers. The 6-foot-6, 206-pounder averaged 13.9 points while shooting a team-best 48.6 percent on three-pointers in the preseason.
“I think a lot [of three-point success is] being in the right place,” Anderson said. “Evan [Turner] and [Michael Carter-Williams have a good IQ. And they look for me a lot once they drive. So I try to be in the area so they can see my face and dish the ball out.”
His preferred three-point spot to shoot from is “the break on the wing.”
“They do a good job of finding me on that spot,” Anderson said.
